Unleash Your Creativity
Waveform is a rapidly evolving application specifically designed for the needs of modern music producers. Specializing in creative and inspirational workflows and avoiding features not explicitly needed allow the app to remain surprisingly fun and intuitive. While other apps try to appeal to broad user groups, for example film score, live sound, performance – we are laser focused on music production.
Unlike other affordable DAW’s, Waveform does not impose any restrictions whatsoever – we believe in unlimited track count, full feature set and freedom to add any plugins. Waveform also runs on all the major desktop operating systems – macOS, Windows and Linux. Your imagination is the only limit.
INSTRUMENTS / FX
Waveform includes a suite of built in FX including EQ, dynamics, reverb and mastering grade channel strip. MIDI FX such as the real time chord player and virtual instruments including Collective and the ground breaking Multi Sampler, plus the Grammy award winning Melodyne Essentials pitch manipulation.
Waveform includes the excellent Imagina Loops ‘Alex Sanfilippo’ collection of world class multi track drum loops. These compliment the creative MIDI production tools such as the pattern generator and premium instruments, allowing you to focus on creativity rather than programming.
TRAINING / SUPPORT
Extensive free online video tutorials are constantly being expanded and a detailed user guide is available within the app, plus contextual popup help guides you when needed. Free online support is available via our streamlined Zendesk portal, connecting you to the most relevant team member.
The concept of sampling has been around for decades and still remains relevant in all forms of music production. The process of finding sounds, manipulating them and storing them for use in your own compositions can be a critical element for defining ‘your sound’. The new Multi-Sampler instrument goes deep, offering truly contemporary sampling capabilities – but that’s not where the innovation ends. We have gone beyond the standard sampler features and optimized user workflow and integration within the DAW so creating your own sounds is faster and more intuitive. For example, the sampler can record directly from other apps – such as your web browser – which means sound sources are literally unlimited. Fans of ReCycle will love the one button audio clip import/slice and convert to MIDI tool. Adding content into the sampler, manipulating in creative ways and storing/recalling your sounds has never been more inspirational – create your sound.
Waveform 9 features six new modifiers, building on the popular LFO tools from previous generations. These creative tools allow you to manipulate parameters adding movement and ‘life’ to your sounds. The new tools consist of:
LFO – Basic LFO with a range of shapes now including random (S&H) and noise (ramp).
Breakpoint – An oscillator with a variable number of points that can be dragged to create a custom shape.
Step – A step sequence between 2 & 64 bipolar steps.
Envelope Follower – Follows the audio signal on the track and maps this to parameter changes.
Random – Similar to the random types of the LFO except this has smoothing and step depth controls for random-walk type movements.
MIDI Tracker – Track incoming pitch or velocity in absolute or relative modes. Create a map of MIDI to output value.
Creating and assigning plugin macro parameters allows you to quickly extract your favorite features from complex virtual instruments and effects and placing them at your finger tips. Macro’s can control any number of parameters from any number of devices, so the feature can be used for creative sound design and sound shaping, as well as a time saving tool to be recalled with your favorite plugins – always have your favorite tools right where you need them.
Modern virtual instruments and effects are constantly becoming more powerful and editing capabilities are getting deeper. This results in plugin user interfaces that can be overwhelming and complex. Now you can create your own faceplates for your favorite plugins allowing you to choose exactly what controls and parameters you want to view and manipulate – even adding different controls not available on the original UI such as X/Y pads. Quickly build an interface with the exact controls you need for your favorite plugs.
The powerful modular ‘rack’ environment in Waveform has become highly revered for its limitless capabilities. Creating complex assemblies of DSP is easy and intuitive, allowing you to focus on the task at hand – whether that be processing a vocal or diving deep into multi instrument sound design. Racks 2.0 takes it to the next level with the addition of the ‘stacked’ view and new auto connection capabilities. Add to this the ability to create custom face plates and macros, and the Rack 2.0 environment just became a whole lot more visual and creative.
The new chord track allows you to visually track the musical progressions throughout your arrangement. Paired with the extremely popular MIDI pattern generator, you can quickly experiment with different chords across multiple synchronized MIDI clips.
Track loops are a new way to save multi track data along with a stereo preview clip. The preview clip can be auditioned when browsing your libraries, then expanded to the original multi track format upon adding to your edit – or simply use the preview clip if desired. Recall of complete track setup including plugins, LFO’s, automation etc can be saved as part of the track loop format. Creating your own libraries of content has never been more flexible or convenient.
The all new MIDI composition tools available in Waveform are designed to empower and inspire the creative process. Tools which demystify complex musical structures and allow non trained enthusiasts to explore composition. Synchronized pattern generators allow you to dive into chord progressions with matching bass lines, melodies and arpeggios. Real time chord players turn one finger keyboard players into musical maestros. Don’t let your instrumental abilities restrict your creative flow.
Waveform features an expanded modular mixer that can take advantage of multi screen setups. The customizable interface allows you to quickly switch from editing to mixing workflows and desired viewing. Waveform’s powerful ‘racks’ environment allow you to build limitless DSP chains and save/recall them as presets, whether it be your favorite DSP for a particular vocalist, or deep sound design patch. Embrace the power and flexibility of digital modular.
Collective is a powerful sampler and synthesizer capable of generating a wide variety of instrument sounds. Developed to accompany the new music composition tools, Collective allows you to immediately start creating diverse musical styles. Quickly select from over 600 presets and deep dive to surgically craft your unique sound. Pull from the included sample library or load your own, combine with synthesis or cherish the supreme quality of traditional samples. One instrument to rule them all.
Unlimited PotentialWaveform is an unlimited app designed for modern music production. Developed to be creative and inspirational and with a minimal learning curve, our goal is to empower music enthusiasts. Unlike other apps, Waveform supports all major plugin and loop varieties and runs on all major desktop operating systems – now including Raspberry Pi. The beautiful user interface has been carefully crafted to guide the user through the deep capabilities of a digital audio workstation.
